January 16th through 31st
2020 taught us there is always hope for a brighter tomorrow. Together, we weathered many storms and stayed strong. In 2021, we have many things to celebrate – especially that after every storm comes the sun!
This month we will be participating in our annual Waterleaf Baby Bottles for Life Campaign to benefit, support and educate pregnant women facing crisis or unintended pregnancies. The funds collected through the Bottles for Life Campaign will help support the programs and services of the Waterleaf Medical Clinic and Education and Resource Center located in Aurora. Our campaign will run from January 16 through January 31, 2021.
Waterleaf provides practical help: pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, STD testing and treatment as well as continuing education and support for women in our community who would otherwise be at risk for choosing abortion. Last year with the support of churches like St. Mary Immaculate, Waterleaf served 1,024 clients, performed 719 pregnancy tests, 1,113 ultrasounds and welcomed 155 babies.
We ask that you please make your heartfelt financial donation ONLINE, anytime between January 16 and 31. Our campaign website can be accessed through the following link: https://dsnp.co/1Eh8TH.
Please scroll down on the website page to complete the Donation Information section. A “full bottle” holds $30, but you are welcome to make a donation in ANY amount.
